Thoughts and things

This part of my blog features my non-travel and less photo-heavy posts, which showcase what makes me, me. Here you’ll find a bit of everything: engineering and historical musings, random thoughts, projects and opinions, as well as books, art, food, geek stuff, travel trivia and other things. I am after all, erratic, in both my interests and sometimes my temper.

Random projects

“In the years afterward, I fled whenever somebody began to understand me. That has subsided. But one thing remained: I don’t want anybody to understand me completely. I want to go through life unknown. The blindness of others is my safety and my freedom.” P. Mercier (from the Night train to Lisbon, probably my favourite book)

Engineering tidbits

“ ‘How in the fucking hell did you do that?’ Calyph shrugged. ‘I’m an Engineer’, he said simply, as if it would explain everything.” A. Adams (photo by P. Jare)

Travel Trivia

Before visiting a country or a particular place I always do my research and try to learn a bit about it – travelling is all about learning and expanding our horizons, after all. So, I’ve decided to compile the interesting facts from each country or region in a series of posts that I’ve named Travel Trivia. Get ready to learn something new!

#1: Austria
#2: Svalbard
#3: Germany
#4: Georgia
